Palit GeForce GeForce 9800 GTX+ Graphics Cards Reviews
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
X-bit Labs have reviewed two Palit GeForce GeForce 9800 GTX+ graphics cards, one based on the reference design and a custom model.
Let's see what they had to say:
"The two versions of Palit GeForce 9800 GTX+ are good products if you dont mind their outdated architecture. The version with a nonstandard PCB design is preferable. It is smaller and has better cooling and requires somewhat less power. Moreover, this version may prove to be cheaper due to its simpler design. Its lower overclockability is its only drawback, but you cant expect substantial benefits from overclocking such cards anyway unless you use some extreme overclocking methods. Such overclocking just adds a few frames per second in Fraps and other benchmarks but cannot be felt during actual play.
So, if you want to buy a GeForce 9800 GTX+, the Palit GeForce 9800 GTX+ with nonstandard PCB can be a good choice. The reference version of GeForce 9800 GTX+ should only be bought for serious overclocking."
The reference design model is obviously nothing special, but the custom model is top-notch due its compact size, excellent cooler, and S/PDIF sound over HDMI.
